Posted: Tue, Nov 13, 2001, 6:32 PM ET (2332 GMT)
Sean O'Keefe (Syracuse Univ.) Sean O'Keefe, deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), will be nominated to be the next administrator of NASA within the next day, according to reports published by NASA Watch as well as other sources. O'Keefe has served as deputy director of OMB since March and in that position has played a visible role regarding NASA, particularly concerns about budget overruns within the International Space Station program. He testified about the space station in a House hearing a week ago. O'Keefe's background is more financial and technical and oriented more towards defense than aerospace. O'Keefe served as Secretary of the Navy in 1992 after working as comptroller and chief financial officer of the Defense Department from 1989. Prior to joining OMB he was a professor of business and government affairs at Syracuse University.
